Day 11

Physically & mentally drained. One of those days

12:00p M1: banana
5:00 M2: sm. deli sandwich
5:30 slo mo pull ups for a light work out, various types
7:00 M3: cheat meal: turkey/ham foot long sub -- if not for the amount of cheese, bread, and mayo, it would've been healthy!

I fell back into my college way and consumed alcohol last night. I've been drinking less frequently, but need to moderate better.
I'd like to be down to drinking 1 or 2 times per month by December w/ like a 3 drink limit each time.

I mean, I love beer. I've got a collection of like 100 unique beer bottles in my living room (on the bookshelf bahahaha). But no matter what type,
alcohol is still bad for you. Still poison; still old rotted fermented filtered stagnated materials. I need to drink less at a time and less frequently.

Day 12

Usually today would be my 'free day', but since yesterday went down the drain, I'd like to keep today pretty normal and active

9:45a M1: oatmeal, tea, vitamins, sm. clementine
11:15 M2: banana
30 min run. Setting a better pace than I was a week ago, endurance is increasing
12:30p M3: PWO shake -- whey, water, banana
2:30 M4: sm. deli ham sandwich
5:30 M5: banana


Had a photoshoot which caused me to mess up meals 5 and 6, but still did pretty well for the day. Too many bananers though

Day 15-22

Took a vacation for a week. I've read in MH that 2 weeks on 1 week off can be good for muscle growth. Of course, that doesn't justify how I ate... but it was goood. Won't be doing this again for the duration of my training--special occasion. During my break I did do a fair amount of various pull ups and push ups though. Also got pretty good at ping pong hahaa.

Back to work, back in school, back to training.

9:45a M1: oatmeal, cinnamon, vitamins
12:00p M2: eggs (1 yolk), spinach
2:30 M3: whey protein, tea
Exhausted--nap
7:30 M4: deli ham sandwich w/ extra spinach
8:30 30 min jog, moderate pace
9:20 M5: sm. handful pistachios, half an apple

Day 24

Was in a sour mood last night and messed up a great day of activity and eating. Well, heck.. it's a new day, time to get it right.

Slept in until 12
12:30p M1: oatmeal, cinnamon, vitamins
M2: eggs, spinach
M3: sandwich-turkey
M4-6 dont remember

Issues on the home-front are conflicting with my diet and routine. Getting out of the house for a month to go somewhere I can focus
on my training more.

Day 25, Happy Oktoberfest!

Issues at home majorly conflicting with training lifestyle. My 'friend' took the bed I sleep (and the extra air mattress) because of an argument over a lampshade. A friend no longer, but a roommate for 2 more months he remains.

Anyway, this is no diary.

Training restarts tomorrow or Monday at the latest (as soon as I relocate). It's been a bit rocky but time to get back on track!

Day 26 Day before relocation and training kicks up again. Planning on a 3 mile jog
M1: pistachios, lots of water, banana
M2:ham sandwich
Work out: 2-3 mile jog with various pull ups and pushups (roughly 45 mins activity)
M3: grilled chicken, rice, beans
M4: egg sandwich
M5: egg sandwich

Drank again. Out of this place tomorrow, drinking will cease.
